Samsung has not quite taken the official step to ensure or confirm that they are indeed the ones behind the Samsung Galaxy A8, although there has been a fair number of rumors going around that this particular device is about to be released. Still, this does not detract from the fact that the Samsung Galaxy A8 is indeed, well on its way to the market. After all, the Galaxy A8 had already picked up approval from China’s telecom authorities. A Chinese website has shared more details on the Samsung Galaxy A8 this time around, so head on right after the jump if you’re interested.
The Samsung Galaxy A8 will measure 158mm x 76.77mm x 5.9mm, where it happens to be the thinnest Samsung smartphone to come out from their stables. It will feature a metal frame, and does resemble the Galaxy S6 in certain aspects – even more from the front, but it is not going to be a high end device.
Hardware specifications for the Galaxy A8 will include an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal memory, a 16MP ISOCELL rear camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, and a 3,050 mAh battery, a 5.7” Super AMOLED Full HD screen, and a fingerprint scanner located within the home button itself. Whispers have it that the Galaxy A8 will cost around $500 when it is released, and chances are it will roll out in China first.
